You already understand a lot of the Fight Club basics and probably carry a few battle scars to prove it, but now’s the time to raise your game. It’s not just fighting your corner more often, but also taking on bigger and bigger opponents. It’s also important that you think through each decision on its merits and don’t just say “no” out of habit. Turning everything down is just as lazy as saying “yes” to everything.

You will check things and are aware that you can’t automatically trust shops or financial institutions to get things right. Chances are the recent headlines around financial selling and retail scams have put you on your metal. But there’s still more you can do. You may need to improve your research or attention to detail. It may be that you get a little battle weary sometimes. If that’s the case, choose your battles carefully and focus on the ones where there’s more to win at stake.

You have a tendency to accept things at first glance and assume they’re right. This could be because you’re so busy it’s hard to find the time to go through the detail. You need to prioritise – some things are worth fighting over more than others. Allocate enough time to make big financial decisions (and some of the regular small ones, such as checking shop receipts for errors) and don’t be afraid to go back and query something later. It’s your money and you’ve worked hard for it. Defend it! Keep a tally of how much you’re saving and see how it mounts up over the weeks and months.
